Crafterall Topography Cards

These are soooooo cool! I just found this shop on called Crafterall. It is a shop run by Marnie of Minnesota. Marnie was a high school english teacher for 8 years before joining etsy. I'm thinking she would have made a wonderful art teacher as well! Her unique paper goods are made with layers and layers of love to create a topographical design that is super eco chic! I love them all!

Check out Crafterall & her blog:

New Etsy Shop!

I'm currently working on my new scarf collection for my shop called Dahlia Scarf. Here is my wall of chiffon all cut and ready to sew and sell! I'm so excited to be starting something new that I love to do and that could potentially make me some extra cash and maybe even quit my day job some day. If there is anything here that catches your eye, let me know and I will put it together for you and post it on etsy for sale asap. The scarves are selling for only $15 each and some of the shorter scarflets are only $10 each, so they make great gifts too!

Re-Upholstering Chairs

I'm working on re-upholstering my dining chairs. They're going from blah micro suede to this gorgeous vintage pattern that works well with my damask, without being damask overkill.

...pursuit of happiness

...pursuit of happiness is one-of-a-kind, original works of art by Letha Colleen. Each piece of art is made using paper, metals and found items of all kinds. All the lovely pieces of paper are hand cut and then assembled (no digital work, she likes to "touch it all") Each piece is made using elements rescued or revived, found when out trolling around flea markets, yards sales and paper shops. These elements are then layed out in "heaps" at her studio, waiting, until just the right moment when everything comes together.
